Israel: 16- Yr. Old Dies Of Post-COVID Syndrome, 1st PIMS Fatality


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A teenager died on Shabbos of pediatric inflammatory multisystem syndrome (PIMS) in Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Petach Tikvah, in what is believed to be the first fatality from PIMS in Israel.

He was later identified as Aden Jamal Fayumi of Jaljulia, who was a healthy teen without any preexisting illnesses but was unvaccinated. He was transferred from Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba two weeks ago and was attached to an ECMO machine in the cardiac ICU.

“There are quite a few children in the country with PIMS and quite a few are ventilated,” Dr. Ofer Schiller, a senior physician at Schneider, told Ynet. “This is a serious illness. I think we’re seeing a rise in PIMS in recent weeks.”

The condition of a six-month-old baby who was hospitalized on Wednesday in critical condition with PIMS and attached to an ECMO machine deteriorated overnight Friday.

  1. Ok YWN
    Stop this insane propaganda.
    “The victim had no preexisting conditions but was not vaccinated”
    Not being vaccinated should not be in the same sentence, as no preexisting condition.
    It is not even a fair thing to write, since this kid is one out millions of kids that had COVID is Isreal and died from pims.

    Thanks for your news, but please leave some room for independents.

  2. The way that the Israeli government (and others as well) have now created their own definition of ‘vaccinated’, any responsible news coverage should take this into account and qualify its statements. Otherwise, this shouldn’t be taken as other than pharmaceutical and telecomm propaganda.

  3. I don’t believe a word that the israeli’s say. They are just trying to push their agenda and they say what ever they want. Every single day there are “breakthrough” studies that come out of that rediculous country they shouldn’t be allowed to talk in public or post stuff on websites because not a word they say is true. Not about the coronavirus, not about unity, and not about medicine

  4. @Marked, you are the insane one. The vastly overwhelming consensus of medical science is that the vaccines help prevent COVID and help prevent the more dangerous symptoms and death when they cannot block the virus. Millions of kids have not died from PIMS, this boy is very unfortunately the first in Israel [not Isreal]. Whenever anyone dies from COVID it is relevant and important to let us know whether the person was vaccinated and I thank YWN for providing this relevant information. Maybe those who are against the COVID vaccines will reconsider if faced with the ongoing accounts of death in unvaccinated persons.
